CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- After months of construction and remodeling, The Boathouse is open at the Cape Coral Yacht Club. Thursday marks the official opening day. Dozens of people filled the restaurant, which overlooks the water.

It replaces the old KC's Riverstop, and is owned by the same people who own Ford's Garage. The restaurant is providing more than 70 new jobs to the area.

The Boathouse offers valet parking, and is open 7 days a week.
